Maryland Event FacilitiesThe F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, named after the famous writer, features a 466-seat performing arts center with a large lobby available for exhibits or receptions. Beneath the theatre stage is the Social Hall, which can accommodate 150-200 people. This fantastic meeting and conference venue is located within a 153-acre park in Rockville, Maryland. The Rockville Civic Center Park is also home for the Glenview Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Croydon Creek Nature Center.

For almost 50 years, the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre has served as an outstanding Maryland event facility in the region for performances, presentations, ceremonies, and as a meeting venue. With state of the art lighting and sound systems, and a full range of other presentation equipment, the theatre as a flexible use venue hosts approximately 500 events each year. Our technical staff is ready to meet your needs. Our box office can be used to support your event. A caterer of your choice is welcome. The Rockville Civic Center Park where the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theater is located has a history that goes from farm to grand estate to an active civic destination. In 1838, Judge Richard Johns Bowie erected the first home "Glen View" on the land and with the help of slaves began to farm approximately 350 acres. Judge Bowie is best know for his many political positions including Chief Judge of Maryland's Court of Appeals. In 1926, Dr. and Mrs. Lyon, both prominent figures in Washington DC, expanded Glenview to create the grand large mansion and formal gardens we continue to enjoy today. Purchased by the City of Rockville in 1957, the mansion and grounds became a civic destination to which the theatre was added in 1960 and a nature center in 2002.

Such a wealth of history is rare indeed. That it has been preserved and expanded, forming this rich and serene park/garden setting makes it all the more unique a venue. The Rockville Civic Center Park is well, situated a mere 15 miles from the White House. One mile from the Rockville Metro stop and a few minutes drive from Interstates 495 and 270. Those wanting a special setting and modern facilities will recognize that the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre and Social Hall is the perfect venue for your next event!
